Oyo Govt. Responds to Letter Credited to AGF Malami
The Special Adviser on Strategy and Political Matters to Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Mr Babatunde Oduyoye has said that the letter credited to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami on the matter of Oyo State Local Governments is unnecessary as the issue is in court.
A statement by Mr Oduyoye states that as far as the matter is still before the Court of Appeal, no one is expected to take extra-constitutional measures.
According to the former Chief Whip of Alliance for Democracy (AD) in the House of Representatives, the purported letter from the office of the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) could cause tension in the state.
The statement urges the Federal Government and its agents to be wary of their actions as the matter is still in court.
It notes that the Oyo state read a letter being circulated in the social media by elements of the APC in which the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), gave a directive to Governor Seyi Makinde to reverse the House of Assembly’s decision to suspend the 68 illegal chairmen of local governments in Oyo State.
It therefore describes the action as unconstitutional.
